CDPS UAS Pilot Certification Course Construction Information

buckets transparentThe CDPS UAS pilot certification course can be constucted from wood or aluminum. CDPS chose aluminum from 80/20 incorporated due to the reliability, ease of construction, and ligthness of the the material. The spreadsheet below contains all the materials to purchase and construct the course. If you construct the course from 80/20 material it can be assembled with minimal tools and time. If you construct the course from wood, use the measurements listed to cut the wood to length and use screws to attach the pieces together. 

Contact Garrett Seddon with any questions.
